Celebrate Savings And A Healthier Diet With A Pantry Staple
(NAPSA) – A growing number of consumers are celebrating the fact that cooking and baking from scratch-instead of from a mix-can be just the recipe for saving money and adding important nutrients to their diets.
Cooking and baking from scratch can be very convenient if you stock your pantry with a few affordable staples. Whole wheat flour is one such staple that is drawing interest from consumers who are looking to boost the nutritional value of their favorite homemade foods, but they don’t enjoy its taste, texture and appearance.
According to Phil Lempert, food trends expert and Supermarket Guru, ‘Today’s consumers are looking for whole grain products that offer a balance of health benefits and taste. Ultragrain White Whole Wheat Flour from Eagle Mills is an example of a product that gives consumers the nutrition they need with the taste and texture they want.’
Eagle Mills Ultragrain White Whole Wheat Flour is made from specially selected white wheat that is milled to the consistency of refined white flour so products are lighter in color with the taste, appearance and texture consumers know and love, but with higher levels of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including 30 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of dietary fiber per serving.
It can also be purchased as a blended flour under the Eagle Mills label. Made with a blend of 70 percent premium white flour and 30 percent Ultragrain flour, Eagle Mills All-Purpose Flour made with Ultragrain is intended to give consumers a middle ground as they move from refined white flour to 100 percent whole wheat flour. The blended flour works as a cup-for-cup replacement for other all-purpose flours and provides 9 grams of whole grains per serving and two times the fiber. Look for the flours at mainstream grocery stores nationwide.
